Looking for cameras for bird watching? Nikon Coolpix P950 is a superzoom camera, great for beginners in bird watching and photography. Here are some photos I made using Nikon P950 bird mode (you can also read my post about Nikon moon zoom).

Nikon P950: Superzoom Camera For Birding
I’ve always liked watching nature and animals. As a kid, I used to go to a huge field between two buildings (I guess it just looked huge), watch the bugs and collect flowers. I then took the flowers home, tried to dry them, failed, and then got bugs at home too. Yay! I also loved watching ants work, had a bird watching book, a love hate relationship with rats, and was happy every time I saw a stray cat. I was never into bird photography, though.
This, like so many other things, changed with Covid, the lockdown, and the isolation. I got a cat, build a bird watching station for her, and got so impressed by the variety of wildlife even a crowded city has to offer. Then, finally, I thought, “Why not film these animals, too?”
After a few attempts with mobile phone lenses and monocular, I got my first camera, Nikon Coolpix P950. A superzoom camera for birding, easy to use for beginners, has a bird mode and 83x optical zoom. You can get it on Amazon here.
I started photographing with my new camera whenever I had time (and let’s face it, I had a lot of time), creating videos, and publishing it on social media.
